According to the surgeon general, one in seven Americans will face a substance abuse addiction. This isn’t exactly surprising with high-stress work jobs, a national opioid crisis, and platforms such as the Dark Web making access to drugs easier than ever. No adult should ever have to feel shame in getting professional help to overcome alcohol or substance abuse addictions. Outpatient programs make rehabilitation a possibility for everyone, without disrupting regular routines. For those looking for outpatient detox in Baltimore City, the Bergand Group is quality rehabilitation and treatment center.

What is Outpatient Detox?

An outpatient detox program allows a patient to go through detox from the comfort of home. Unlike an in-house detox program, the patient visits the rehab center a few times throughout the week rather than staying onsite permanently.

The detox process often comes with withdrawals that are painful and can even be dangerous. With an outpatient detox program, the patient is still monitored and is in frequent contact with medical professionals to ensure progression through the treatment is successful. The rehabilitation center will likely prescribe medication to help relieve the withdrawal symptoms.

What are the Benefits of Outpatient Detox Programs?

Outpatient detox programs are incredibly beneficial. The programs are typically more affordable as patients don’t have to pay for housing. Patients can continue working, which avoids having to take a break from earning an income.

Unfortunately, addiction still has a stigma in our society. An outpatient detox program allows patients to get help without having to inform coworkers or neighbors.

An outpatient detox program typically begins with the patient coming to the facility in the morning, on the first day of rehabilitation, without consuming drugs or alcohol that day. As the first withdrawal symptoms begin, the patient is monitored. When the medical staff believes the patient can handle leaving the facility, the patient is given prescribed withdrawal medication, and are free to go back home.

Individuals who successfully go through an outpatient detox program can smoothly transition into outpatient treatment and recovery programs. Patients can rest assured when choosing the Bergard Group for outpatient detox in Baltimore City, the treatment plan will be individualized, and will cover all necessary components for a successful recovery.
